BBC have a great selection of films, TV shows, and documentaries over the Christmas season

The best lineup from a TV station we've seen so far.

Now that RTÉ, TG4, and Virgin Media have launched their Christmas slates, it's time for the BBC to do the same and they've got a very nice mix of films, documentaries, and new TV shows to entertain audiences.

For music fans, there's documentaries on Oasis, Dolly Parton, Liam Gallagher, Fleetwood Mac, and more.

Steven Knight (Peaky Blinders) kicks off the festive season with his three-part adaptation of A Christmas Carol on Sunday, 22 December and the list keeps getting better.

On this note, we've decided to pick some of the festive highlights in their schedule. At present, the specific haven't been announced but the date and channel have, so start planning.
